Who doesn't like Chocolate?

Regardless of peoples' opinions on chocolate, a sure pleaser for everyone is a tray of brownies. I don't know how many times I've been with friends who "insist" that they don't like chocolate, but knock out the brownies. Brownies are great, because you can do absolutely nothing with them, or top them with the most outrageous of ideas. Brownies are also a great treat for all "kids from one to ninety-two" (Thank you Mel Torme), because everyone can go to town making their own creations with them. Brownies are also a lot quicker to make & a lot less of a mess than other cakes, as well. So, get making a tray, set out a bunch of ingredients on the table & create your own Sundae bar, but using Brownies instead of Ice Cream.... Uhhh, Well okay, you can use the ice cream too.
I must admit, as much as I prefer higher quality chocolate than Hershey's to eat as a treat, They do have some of the best dessert recipes out there.
Here is Hershey's Best Brownie Recipe from
